Hello lovelies… NattyDee here, I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend.
I am back to give you SallyHansen’s Salon Effect Nails Final Update & Verdict. Sorry my blog has taken me so long to get back to but I have been working on releasing my YouTube channel and that has taken up a lot of my time!
As I mentioned in my last post: I was about to shower with the strips. Well, showering was an ordeal… the edges kept getting caught in my hair and I thought for sure the strips were going to peel right off but they actually stayed put! As soon as I got out of the shower I put some clear polish under the lifted edges and added another top coat to the strips. I kept applying a layer of top coat daily until the night before removing them. I think after a while I just got used to the strips being on my nails and altered the way I touched things so as not to snag the strips. The strips held up really well and I kept getting lots of compliments on my fancy manicure which is always a bonus 🙂
The results ended up lasting me 8 days and this is how they looked right before I removed the strips …
I apologize for the blurry image but I was trying to show in detail how the edges had begun to peel after the 8th day.
Then came time to remove the strips … what a horrible experience that was!
Now it clearly states, in a pretty orange stripe across the front of the package “Remove With Polish Remover”… REALLY?!? I began rubbing with remover as I normally would in order to remove polish and nothing happened … so I scrubbed and scrubbed trying to remove the strips and still nothing ~ HUH ?!? I don’t know if it was due to the fact that I had applied several layers of top coat or if it was just the strips themselves but they just wouldn’t budge! I ended up having to peel off as much of the strips as I could in an attempt to remove them which in turn stripped a layer off of my nails! NOT IMPRESSED! Even after vigorously scrubbing with remover once the strips were removed and buffing my nails I still wasn’t able to get all of the strips off and then I was left with weakened nails! EEK! In all my years of doing my nails and the countless products I have used, I have NEVER used a product that left my nails in ruins! Removing the strips took longer than the manicure was worth!
Needless to say I won’t be using SallyHansen’s Salon Effects again!! Hopefully my review saves one person from ruining their nails!!
